With the Olympic and Paralympic Games just around the corner, the Musée Guimet invites you to discover one of the most widely practiced sporting disciplines in Asia. From Qi gong to taekwondo and kung fu, discover martial arts with your family over two days of unique activities.

What's on the program? Screenings, guided tours of the museum's collections, martial arts demonstrations and performances, inviting you to move, discover and experience the works in a different way, from an early age.
